Hawks Ladies’ 8s faced off against Oxford Ladies’ 8s on the pitch of Headington School, in what proved to be a thrilling local derby.
 
As the rain clouds parted and the sun started to shine, Hawks showed they meant business going 1-0 ahead with a neat finish by Libby, poaching a tricky rebound from the Oxford goalie. Despite continued Hawks pressure and dominance in possession, Oxford proved to be effective and dangerous on the counter attack, managing to conjure two goals against the flow of play.
 
It was all to play for in the second half, with a tight 2-1 advantage to Oxford. Hawks brought things equal, showing their strength in the set piece. A classy one-two short corner taken by Zoe to Cat who fed back to Zoe for a strong finish into the back of the net, which would ultimately contribute to a well deserved player of the match.
 
Despite Hawks’ continued superiority in both possession and territory throughout the second half, Oxford once again proved effective on the counter, managing to deliver a first half repeat by grabbing two more goals against the flow, leaving a final score of Oxford 4 Hawks 2. Arguably a bitter pill to swallow for a strong Hawks performance, but plenty of positives to take away from the game.
 
Several very noteworthy performances, in particular from Liv and Charlotte, but an excellent game from Zoe saw her receive a well earned player of the match. Other nominations included Charlotte, Hannah and Liv.
